America is divided. In fact, I would argue that America is the most divided nation on the planet today. This should not come as a surprise.
To understand, let’s look back in time. Why was Israel divided into the Southern Kingdom and Northern Kingdom?
Throughout their history in the Promised Land, the children of Israel struggled with conflict among the tribes. The division was a judgment on not keeping God’s commands, specifically the commands prohibiting idolatry. From a human viewpoint, the division was the result of tribal discord and political unrest. The principle is that sin brings division (1 Corinthians 1:13, 11:18; James 4:1).(1)
America has the same problem, except we do not call them tribes. We use words like democrat, republican, liberal, conservative, left wing, right wing, etc America is becoming lawless in so many ways. Some want to save life, some want to end it. Some want to honor God, some want to remove God. Similar to Israel, discord and politics ruled the day. We have more idols today than we can count. SIN is dividing America.
How does God see it?
“And knowing their thoughts Jesus said to them, “Any kingdom divided against itself is laid waste; and any city or house divided against itself will not stand. If Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself; how then will his kingdom stand?” – Matthew 12:25-26
On June 16, 1858, Abraham Lincoln gave his “House Divided” speech. He knew that the nation could not continue on a divided path. War followed 1861-1865.
Things are about to get really weird, so I pray that you are spiritually prepared to endure the trials and judgements America will soon face. Give up your prideful ways and surrender to God’s will. Read the Bible and believe it’s message of salvation, hope and peace.
“And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name (Jesus Christ) under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.” – Acts 4:12
